Fresh Macbook and a set of neat tools

I recently bought a Macbook Pro Retina (Late 2014) with 128 GB of storage. I thought that if I needed 256 GB, I could just buy a regular SSD and swap them. Turns out i can’t. Or.. I can, but it’s a special SSD that costs a third of a new Mac. And I just bought one! I can’t even afford milk!

Anyhow, here’s a list of software that I “need” as a software kind of guy:

  • Slack – the best team communication platform
  • Dropbox – having my data stored safely is just really neat. Also need it for collaboration some times
  • Google Drive – same as with Dropbox.
  • Sublime Text – best editor.
  • PyCharm – best ‘heavy’ python editor.
  • WebStorm – best ‘heavy’ javascript editor.
  • TotalFinder
    – Honestly just for cmd-x to cut
  • Alfred – I don’t have words. It’s an awesome utility must-have.
  • 1Pass – Never have to remember passwords again.
  • Spectacle – window manager for OS X.
  • Skype – Talking with people (though I try to use appear.in when possible)
  • Spotify – Musicplayer
  • Balsamiq – Making sketches and mockups for costumers
  • Flux – Adjusts the screen lightning to make late night coding more pleasant
  • FileZilla – FTP Client
  • Sequel Pro – SQL client
  • HomeBrew – need it for all these awesome things
    • brew install git
    • brew install node
    • npm install -g grunt-cli gulp
